The shading effect of BioHavens cools water and makes life more tolerable for its inhabitants
Rural wastewater lagoons are a leading contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. As the schematic shows, the cause of this is excessive build-up of organic matter in the sediments, which in turn is caused by lack of oxygen. Oxygen supports the removal of organics by providing the conditions needed for the bacteria that digest this material.
BioHaven Floating Islands provide surface area for these bacteria to flourish, and increase the oxygen input into water, especially through added aeration.
NanoHaven is an ideal solution. It can be deployed in Lagoon 1, to reduce the BOD and / or in Lagoon 2 to reduce ammonia and take out the remaining BOD.
The solar-powered NanoHaven decreases the reliance on grid power, which is the biggest expense in treating wastewater.
